research and education. cuts to military personnel and law enforcement. cuts that will cause jobs and do real harm to the american economy as it struggles to recover. and the reality is that we don't even have that much time. we only have nine legislative days left in february to address the issue. nine days to negotiate a trillion-dollar deal with the senate and the president. and instead of a meaningful plan to address the crisis that we need to avert, we have this nonsense before us today. this is no way to govern. the disturbing truth is that many republicans seem downright giddy when it comes to the sequester cuts. there is new story after new story of how we'll let the sequester take effect. the gentleman from georgia, dr. price, couldn't support these cuts fast enough. i was shocked. mr. speaker, it was only last week that the economic numbers for the fourth quarter of 2012 were released. unexpectedly we saw a contraction in those numbers, a contraction fueled by a massive reduction in defense spending. what do you know, huge cuts in government spending during a fragile economic r
encourage people who get educated in the united states, in colleges or working with universities, key people in the united states, not encourage companies and people to go back to the home countries. so this issue has recently become an issue fo for deloitte. you know, we've looked at this from a broad prison for a while, but like other companies, microsoft, oracle, the high-tech compass, into, a lot of companies and services companies, you know, this is a recent thing given some of the challenge we've had to actually hire and maintain and fill needs. so as an intro statistic, we hire every year about 7000 employees, 7000 people out of colleges and universities. and that's still not enough to be able to fill the needs of our clients, given a tradition and turnover and things of that nature. sort of streamlined the process. we all know about the backlogs that exist right now and how long it actually takes from beginning to end, and the timing of that and how quickly we can get people deploy to our clients to help them come again like i said before, solve that problem and innovate, which also
they did an incredible job of educating voters about scott brown's ties to big oil. that was essential in my victory. when carl row started pouring money into new mexico to defeat me, they pushed back to help sure we won this race. so pretty powerful endorsements from races where we worked. let me close with a few forward looking comments on the second obama term. sp despite these electoral victories, we believe congress is a dysfunctional place to do business and we think advancements in congress on environmental policies are slim. that means the main opportunity for forward progress in the next few years with the president authority through executive action he can take. we anticipate that we'll continue to see pretty broad and sweeping attacks on our air, our water, our land, our wild life from the boehner led house of representatives and in the senate we anticipate our senate allies will stand strong against these misled attacks. as i said, this election cycle demonstrated there is strong support for addressing climate change. this is heightened in the wake of super storm sandy and

and strong supporter of catholic education, i once again this year introduced a resolution honoring catholic schools. h.res. 46 expresses support for the vital contributions of the thousands of calt lick elementary and secondary schools -- catholic elementary and secondary schools in the united states and the key role they play in promoting and ensuring a brighter, stronger future for our nation. i'd like to thank the 28 members who co-sponsored this bipartisan resolution with me. since 1974 the national catholic education association, the united states conference of catholic bishops have organized and planned national catholic schools week. this year's theme, catholic schools raise the standards highlights recent initiatives undertaken by catholic schools across the country to strengthen the already exemplary standards. america's catholic schools produce graduates with the schools and integrity needed by our businesses, governments, and communities emphasizing a well-rounded educational experience in instilling the values of giving back to community and helping others. nearly every catholic
this imbalance, congress created the children's hospital graduate medical education program. this is a program that was created and has been sustained with bipartisan support. unfortunately the program is facing elimination. president obama's budget for the 2012 fiscal year called for elimination of the program, despite the positive results. i support getting rid of programs that are duplicative, unproven or unnecessary. especially with the budget pressures we're facing now. however chgme has a proven track record. over 40% of pediatricians in the united states are trained through chgme. 43% of those in subspecialties are trained through the program. the children's hospital of philadelphia runs the largest pediatric residency in the country. the residents will treat children in my community and then move across the country to practice in other communities. we need their expertise now more than ever. last congress i worked with commy democratic counterpart on the -- my democrat counterpart to renew the program. our legislation passed the house of representatives twice in the 112th congress, bot

-time work since. college-educated, 20 years of experience. i live in san francisco in an area where did score -- where discrimination based on age is encouraged. discrimination based on race is encouraged as well. it is a shame. my senators, basically if you are not from a protected class, you do not exist. these people -- i saved up a lot of money over my life and had planned on retiring at 65, like everyone else, but i spent a lot of my retirement just trying to survive, which is a shame. host: was your retirement 401k? personal savings? how did it break down? caller: it was a mix. host:-, n.c., joe is joining us on the independent line. -- ash, n.c., joe is joining us on the independent line. caller: all of a sudden everything fell apart several years ago. i could have retired, but i saw the writing on the wall, businesses started falling down and everyone who has a retirement, god bless you, but it is so hard. i feel bad for the grandchildren who they all say are not going to make it. it is terrible, this country has put a hole in front of everything else. they have got to quit doin
with great education and great skills know their job security is fragile. as a way to protect yourself, people like to think that that could never happen to me. i am good enough that i would not lose my job or if i did, i would certainly be able to find something away. in some ways by turning on the unemployed and putting it on them, in some ways, there is a bizarre defense mechanism that makes people feel more secure about their own jobs in a fragile economy. i think there is a lot of complex factors going on here. it is certainly eroded very deeply in a complete misunderstanding of just how bad the economy and the recovery has been. host: what is the best way to protect these people? guest: is important for them to be honest and talk about why you lost your job and talk in detail -- if it was because the company went under or there were massive layoffs or the industry were working in started suffering -- talk in detail about all you have done to try to get re-employed. employers don't wish -- don't want to hire lazy people. people are out there actively looking. discuss the creative
, it is the lack of awareness and education that they told us. they never explained to us or even let us know what a concussion was. i had no idea until recently. even since i retired in 2008 from the patriots, i would still experience headaches. i would experience headaches from sunday until tuesday and wednesday. even at times, there's a sense of loneliness, anxiety problems, and sometimes i just get headaches from just being in bright lights. it is tough. people have to understand these players, a lot of their agenda is based on money, but a lot of these players are really suffering read this is for real. i am experiencing now. i am scared to death. i have children and a beautiful wife. i'm scared what will happen to me 10, 15 years from now. >> law concussion were once an unspoken and misunderstood problem, today more than 4000 former nfl players have filed a lawsuit against the league. they contend the nfl, which makes $9.5 billion a year, new hits to the head could lead to long-term brain damage but chose not disclose that information. new rules are being instituted to minimize future injuri
want to point out, which will be live it 10:00 a.m. on c-span3 is education secretary arne duncan talking about waivers for the "no child left behind" bill. on c- like a 10:00 a.m. span3. robert is on our republican line for seamless. should sequestration be allowed to go through? caller: hi. we were calling it the fiscal cliff. all the sudden it seems we have gone away from that and we are calling it sequestration. i thought that the whole term "fiscal cliff" came about because sequestration was part of that. the media keeps differentiating that now. host: you don't see a difference? caller: it is still sequestration, that is the fiscal cliff. that has not gone away. host: semantics aside, what would you like to see done? caller: just for the media to clarify we never really got anywhere except for slight increase in taxes on a small number of people. it was $450 million and above. how many people actually dropped checks of? ? host: $450 million? caller: $450,000. excuse me. i don't know anybody that's actually gets a check of that amount, or maybe a bonus. i don't know. nonethel
in to education but to -- [inaudible] follow one miff dear and closest a pediatrician. the day they met him, he was sitting in his den and i asked him if he could walk and he said yes. i said, as of today, you'll being have your meals in the dinning room. i started the process of bringing him overt shell that he was slowly putting himself in to. watching tv and seeing the violence and things that were happening. he was scared another time. [inaudible] one end from the patio and the other. there comes a time. and i kept on doing that until i got him in to the wheelchair. and soon after that, he started going to -- [inaudible] and stuff like that. ic being a part of each other's life not wanting to make him feel better. also prolonged his life for six and a half years. to me -- [inaudible] [inaudible] [inaudible] he said you're no fly in the milk. i mean, it made me feel welcome. they did. i was taking care of like a human being. had a great influence in doing my ged because he always said to me, you are better than some of the doctors that i worked with. because of your bedside manner. when i fi
. the education of poor people in the inner-city does not take away from others, it expands our economy and makes us all do better. this is the ideal of our country. as the rabbi would tell me, the jewish saying, that jews together are strong, but jews with other people are invincible. he african saying that spiderwebs united can tie up a line. the very principle of this country, one of my advisers told me one of the fundamental principles of islam. the oneness of the community. we recognize dependency and see strength. that became the problem solving idea that i took on. i began looking at what other cities around america were doing. i came over to mayor bloomberg, who i called the obi-wan kenobi of mayors. all of us young padawans come to see what is going on over here. i could not wait to talk about climate change. the time is now. we just focus on cities where the carbon output is significant. if we do pragmatic things, we are going to make change. he started showing me programs he had that created jobs, including the health of cities like mine that has exit -- epidemic asthma rates. i went t
will be outlining a new agenda for his party, focusing on issues like education and health care and spend less time talking about the deficit. >> really? oh, yes. eric cantor to the rescue. he is ready to save the republican image and put a stop to the electoral college losses, right? of course, this is not the first time eric cantor has tried to save the party. you see, it actually is the fourth attempt that he has had. in 2009, cantor held a pizza party, remember that? with jeb bush and mitt romney by launching the national council for a new america that didn't work. a year later, cantor was back at it. he was one of the young guns ready to take the republican party by storm. >> there is a better way, and a new team is ready to bring america back. eric cantor, kevin mccarthy, paul ryan joined by common-sense conservative candidates from across the country. together, they are ready to make history. together they are the young guns. >> the good old days. in 2011, cantor launched the you cut program. he wanted to get the public to vote on weekly cuts to federal government. another year, another fail
it. what do you think? >> you have to be an educated vegetarian. i was a vegetarian for a very long time. i was a dumb vegetarian. i ate cheese, macaroni and cheese, pastas, bread, and when i started eating meat again i lost weight because -- >> i eat a lot like this, but then you always wonder, you know, is it okay? are you getting enough protein? >> as long as you're getting beans, lentils, so you have to be educated and research. >> so for someone who is considering trying to cut back on meat and red meat in particular, it mean, there's a lot of restaurants do this meatless monday kind of thing. what are your tips? what would you encourage people to do to try to cut back? >> well, if you order a steak or even chicken sometimes they put two chicken breasts or an entree or giant steak. cut back right there. that could be two or three servings. save meat for dinner. rely on dairy, legunes, beans and rice. >> keep the protein to a minimum, right? >> yes. you want to have, for your plate, if you have a plate, you want a full plate. half of it fruit and veggies. fruit is wonderful too,
into education for yourself or your kids. take great advantage of certificate programs that are offered perhaps through your community college or through companies. microsoft, for example, offers a certificate program that trains people in how to use microsoft software and things like that. makes you more marketable in your field or if you want to change fields. that's something people should be aware of. community college is a great resource. >> if we're educating a child or paying for education, maybe get a ba in three years and not four. >> about 50 schools now have three year degree programs and you can have it do it yourself. if your kids take enough advance placement courses in high school, they can have enough to put toward their college requirements. i know several kids who actually could have gotten out in three years and took on double and even triple majors just so they could spend an extra year in school lchlt and make more of their education. but they could have gotten out in three years. and you can do that on your own. >> fantastic. janet said some of them. get a certificate, get
are important, education and infrastructure of the health and human service needs. so medicaid will need to have some flexibility, much of the software going to watch as we go forward. let me just finish by ending where i started. we need to address the rising cost of health care. i do think the affordable care act does that. i think we provided an opportunity with our health care exchange in utah as a model based on good principles that allows businesses to continue to provide the benefit and help with competitive forces and consumer control to, in fact, have an impact on the rising cost of health care. it may be imperfect but it's a step i think in the right direction. again, the fundamental position that i'm taking and we are taking in utah is free market works if we allow but it takes politicians like myself and others out there to be disciplined and to give time for the marketplace to work. we sometimes are so anxious to fix a problem that we don't let the marketplace make the adjustments that are necessary to get the right outcome. and again as i said, if we want the best quality product,
was great. she was articulate, well educated, did some wonderful things, knew how to handle the power of male egos, but the press would not give her the same accolade. the general media would not give her the same accolade, not because she was not constant, but because of her political ideology. i think there is some bias in reading hillary clinton -- rating hillary clinton. >> that was lawrence from -- host: that was lawrence from st. paul. "the washington post has this as far as analysis -- nebraska, on the republican line. caller: i would like to make a few comments about hillary clinton. think the only reason that she ever had her job was because of her husband built. she has done exactly what she has been told to do by the president, and a lot of us are not in tune with president obama's schedule. especially when we have at least lousy deals, whenever a person throws her hand up in the air and does not want to admit to any responsibility of the job done poorly that killed some of our american -- not happy with her performance ticket she is just mirror of -- performance. she is j
, but at the same time, on issues like health care, on the economy, on education even, latinos are more and more in line with the democratic party today. so if immigration reform gets done, and as it looks right now, it's mostly a democratic thing as opposed to republican thing, it will be hard for republicans to just pull away votes, all at once. >> you know, i want to take a look at numbers relative to a pew poll when it talks about all of the top issues. for hispanic registered voters. look where immigration ranks. number five at 34%. so is the focus on immigration, just a complete oversimplifications on really diverse group of people? >> i think there is a little bit of that going on. i think at the same time there is a recognition this is the most pressing issue with regards to the latino community, we have 11 million, 14 million, whatever the number is. number of illegal immigrants in this country. something they have been trying to deal with for a number of years. very important to a lot of voters. at the same time, it's not the most important issue to these people. the people voting are
of education is to all of those things at their core is the notion that we want the same for the kids of bridgeport as the kids in greenwich. there's an awful lot more that unites us than divides us which will make this cars we all serve in live up to the ability in the qualities of the republic. thank you very much. >> congresswoman. >> good morning, everyone. i was elected to congress about a year-and-a-half ago from california. i represent a district of los angeles. my whole life i am the mother, grandmother, i have worked in the private sector. i have my teaching credential, or to the public sector. my whole life by solve problems. i thought i was uniquely qualified to come to congress because we would be solving problems. frustrating moving from one crisis to the next which between you and me have been man-made, and i mean that -- [laughter] and the moderator is going to give her thoughts on that one. man-made crises, and it the worst problem in our country is the fact that congress cannot belong then that is the worst place we can be. we have so many problems in this country, no
the rule. right now, we're focusing on education. >> reporter: the law has been in place for several months now. the signs are up here along pennsylvania avenue, and warnings have been issued. tomorrow, though, those warnings turn into tickets. cab drivers seem to be blamed the most for making these u- turns across bike lanes. >> it's a lack of knowledge. i think there's the fact that they are in their taxi, there is a money agenda. they got to get the next fare to the person standing on the other side of the road. >> reporter: fair or not, crossing the bike lane will get ou a $100 ticket. in the district, matt acland, fox 5 news. >>> a fox 5 news alert tonight. the social network site twitter announcing it may have been hacked. an estimated 250,000 accounts may have been compromised. the company's director of information security calls the attacks sophisticated and says it does not appear to be the work of amateurs. anyone involved may have or will receive an e-mail with more information. >>> still ahead tonight on fox 5 news at 6:00, two groundhogs go head to head with their forecast. so
they wait, children see their parents deported. students get stuck in an educational purgatory and can't attend college and better their lives in a country that trained them. and mothers and fathers can't provide for their family or care for their loved ones without keeping them in the shadows. so they can't wait any longer. we can't wait any longer. and as rosa parks said, it is just time. from africa to europe to asia, our dysfunctional immigration system is a disincentive to the best and brightest worldwide from coming to our great country. we throw talent away. we tear families apart. we show disregard for those trying to live the american dream. for far too long, we have put off comprehensive immigration reform, but now we are taking up the opportunity to do something about it. and we cannot let this moment pass. it is in that spirit that we hold today's discussion. we will not wait any longer. we have to continue strengthening our border, but we will act on comprehensive immigration reform without delay. we will crack down on employers, but we will make sure there is a pathway to
strategic investments in education, science, research and critical infrastructure necessary to compete in the global economy. the speaker pro tempore: the house will be in order. the house will be in order. the gentlewoman from pennsylvania is recognized for five minutes. ms. schwartz: thank you. i rise in opposition to this bill and to offer the final amendment that will not kill the bill or send it back to committee. if adopted, the bill, as amended, will immediately proceed to final passage. this amendment rejects the rigid partisan view presented in this legislation that deficit reduction must be achieved by spending cuts alone regardless of the consequences. moving from one crisis to another and failing to meet our responsibilities as republicans have done time and time again has hurt our economic growth. most recently in december, our economy contracted for the first time in three years. as a result of delayed action by republican leadership in the house. this amendment makes clear there is a better way. it recognizes that our nation faces serious financial challenges. we agree,
of thousands of americans who work in national security or education or clean energy, not to mention the growth of the entire economy should be put in jeopardy just because folks in washington couldn't come together. >> the president says the delay will give congress more time to work out a longer-term deal. >> the sequester is $500 billion in automatic spending cuts over the next 10 years. they have already put it off by two months with the rhythmic -- with a mix of revenues and spending cuts. >> republicans a more tax revenue as out question. house speaker john boehner says americans don't support sacrificing real spending cuts or tax hikes. economists say the steep cuts in defense programs could derail the fragile economy. congress has less than four weeks to figure something out. >> 40 degrees in downtown baltimore. that's close to normal for this time of year. some of the outlying suburbs are couple of degrees cooler. 38 degrees at columbia. on the eastern shore, temperatures mostly in the upper 30s to nearly 40 degrees. the flurries and snow showers are falling into surface temperatures a
a real education and in the last two years, i've gotten a chance to work on senate races around the country. i did the east and there were two of us and i did wisconsin east so i have a full half of the country for the 2012 cycle. it was a fascinating two years to be in politics. i would echo what marlon said that campaigns matter. i would love to talk about that even with a gigantic influx of money, the basic fundamental elements of campaigns still very much matter. i actually think there is an inverse relationship to the amount of money that comes in. i think the more television commercials we have, the more media get back its permit people, the more important it becomes to adhere to the basics and remember you have to come to the race with the right candidate for the wright state for the right time and not forget those things in an effort to push somebody in who you think might not win. i love my time at the dscc are started in 2011 and my first day was the week after we had essentially recruited now senator joe donnelly into the race in indiana. he was the first race that i
entrepreneurs should cheer you up. if you're worried about the lack of science educators, eager foreign-born people coming here to work there, it is the most obvious and clean solution. paul ryan makes a point of pointing out the growth advantages of immigration.
